Feelin' Film

In a time when film criticism is as provocative as ever, Feelin' Film ventures to change the discussion from what we hate about a film to what we love about it. We judge more on emotional experience than technical merit. Every movie makes us feel something.

This week we are covering one of our favorite films of all-time, Christopher Nolan's magical masterpiece - The Prestige. It is a film we talk about often and yet it still feels full of untapped discussion potential. Yes, there is plenty of magic, but there is also a deep (and brilliantly acted) character study about obsession and the lengths some will go to win. Come listen as we break it down as best we can and try to do justice to a movie that provokes our thoughts and feelings, and is endlessly re-watchable.

This week we journey back into the wizarding world for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first film in a lengthy new series set in the USA. It's impossible to discuss this film without talking about the expectations fans of Harry Potter go into the movie with. We also have a great conversation about the difference in writing a new screenplay and adapting an already completed novel. We may not have thought everything about this film was fantastic, but there is plenty to like and it was fun working our way through it.

In this minisode, we tackle the deep themes in Denis Villeneuve's new science fiction masterpiece, Arrival. Based on a Ted Chiang short story called “Story of Your Life”, Arrival tells the story of an alien race who has landed on earth and humanity's attempts to understand why. This is a movie that falls into the thinking science fiction genre and we have a great time feeling and thinking our way through it together.

This week we cover one of 2016's most underrated films, the rom-com thriller, Nerve. With surprisingly incredible visuals and soundtrack, plus a timely story about the dangers of placing your identity in social media approval, this movie delivers a great experience that is fun, funny, and sweet. It's not just for young adults, and has a message worth hearing.

For this week's episode we discuss Mel Gibson's latest film, which is both powerful and important. Hacksaw Ridge had a huge emotional impact on us both and solidified its place among our favorites of the 2016. We talk in depth about how Desmond Doss' story needed to be told and marvel at just how well everything in this film comes together. It's a great conversation about sacrifice, conviction, and faith. We hope you'll enjoy.
